Coke & Condoms

My thoughts after watching this TED talk:

Everybody in every country drinks Coke (roughly). What if every Coke came with a condom?

Interesting idea for family planning.

Some would argue that it might look like Coke was encouraging sexual behavior...well, I think our American media has that covered already. Plus...the rampant spread of AIDS might seem to say that sexual behavior goes on with or without our approval/disapproval of the matter. Why not encourage the idea of protection and respect...a different kind of pleasure.

A drink that rots your teeth and can clean out your toilet's plumbing but encourages wise choices? Now that is a conundrum...but perhaps a question that could save the world.




P.S. She shows part of K'naan's World Cup commercial! Yah K'naan!

I don't really like coke. I like Dr. Pepper.

I prefer Dr. Pepper as well. Sometimes root beer. Honestly though, I don't drink a lot of soda pop. But if condoms came with not-from-concentrate orange juice...

Will one of you guys ever do a TED talk? I bet.

good idea. because it would also be fun to see the thousands of non-intended uses children and women would find for the condoms that came with their coke :)
